Lake Yankton Fishery Affected By Missouri River

June 23, 2011, 7:17 AM

Lake Yankton Fishery Affected By Missouri River
YANKTON, SD - The rising Missouri River is pushing up the level of Lake Yankton in southeast South Dakota, and officials are worried about the effects on the fishery.

Dave Becker with the Army Corps of Engineers says the river has risen higher than the lake and has started backfilling into the lake. That could threaten access. A fishing dock for the disabled has already been closed, along with a beach playground.

Becker says Missouri River fish are able to swim into the lake. He says Lake Yankton has been a closely regulated fishery for years and officials hope the quality of the fishing is not hurt.

The Missouri River is flooding because of excessive spring snowmelt and rains in the basin.
